On January 26, 2003 the Information Technology Technical Assistance and
Training Center (ITTATC) will offer an audio conference to provide
information on state approaches to electronic and information technology
accessibility and the adoption of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of
1973, as amended.

The Audio Conference, Third Annual State Electronic and Information
Technology Accessibility Initiatives: State of the States, will provide
information on laws, policies, and programs and processes that have been
implemented at the state level. Panelists will address strategies
implemented at the State level to improve IT accessibility - laws, policies
and programs. They will also address the benefits and expectations of
implementing IT accessibility policies; the role of stakeholders in
implementing IT accessibility policies; and the successes, challenges, and
ongoing needs.

Panelists will include the State Government IT Accessibility Coordinator for
the State of Maine's Office of Chief Information Officer; a representative
from the State of Indiana's Information Technology Oversight Commission; a
Policy Analyst from the Kentucky Assistive Technology Services; and the
manager of the Technology Investigations Center for the State of Arkansas.
The panel will be moderated by Deborah Buck, Director of State IT
Accessibility Programs for ITTATC, and Michael Morris, Chair of the ITTATC
State IT Initiatives Workgroup.
